Acupuncture

AcupunctureAcupuncture is a drug-free way for our patients to relieve pain and help them progress along more quickly in their rehabilitation program. Acupuncture has been a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine that originated over 5000 years ago and is offered as a holistic approach to pain management. It can provide drug-free pain relief for people with chronic pain and suffering by encouraging the body to promote natural healing. The needling of acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release pain-relieving chemicals (endorphins & serotonin) and hormones in the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These chemicals are the body’s natural painkillers. The body produces them to influence its own internal regulating system and healing abilities to fight disease and maintain a healthy physical and emotional state. Incorporating acupuncture into a rehabilitation program can help people with chronic pain or suffering from such things as:

  • Headache & Migraines
  • Back, Neck & Joint Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Myofascial Pain
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • Menstral Cramps
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Tennis Elbow
